Cozy's research interests include examining how social identities extremetize as a result of ostracism and social isolation. Through this lens, she is interested in social environments and their effect on interpersonal and community health from a social identity perspective. Ultimately Cozy hopes to practice research in the field of social psychology while working in the local community. She hopes to apply her knowledge in support of community health through the cultivation of interconnected digital and physical social environments.
